My husband says I get like this sometimes:
I love eating out, soda, snack foods, etc. and I indulge any chance I get, especially with such awesome excuses as moving, being busy, and so on. I am not feeling so hot with all this though. Less exercise, more treat-style food and drink= a tired and sluggish me. My new house is making me want to garden and decorate and such, so I need some more energy, hopefully without resorting to too much coffee/soda/sugar/etc!!
Anybody got suggestions for healthy foods that pep you up? I am thinking a return to more raw stuff is probably a good idea too :)
And now...what I've been up to the last few days:
We had some good friends over for drinks and dinner the other night. We started with some EXCELLENT salsa. A double batch of this stuff was gone in no time!
Everybody threw stuff on the grill ranging from the m-word (them) to potatoes, onions, and corn (me)!
We finished with a Kittee Kake! I made this cake and this icing. Mmmmmm. It went great with way too much white wine and tons of good talking!
The next day I needed something verrry easy and pretty basic due to my over-consumption of said wine. I made black bean soup from the recipe on the back of the box of Fantastic Foods black beans. I topped it with a little Vegenaise because I was out of Tofutti sour cream. It was surprisingly good and really hit the spot along with my giant recovery Sprite.
In other news, I love craft stores. I got all this fun stationary type stuff with little woodland creatures all over it on the cheap! Red flocked deer stickers I tell you!!! Can't wait to sit down and write some letters.
I'll leave you all with a special treat. I found a hydrangea bush on the side of the new house. Yay!!! So pretty!
Till next time!
